For Phase 2 of my Living Room makeover, I was inspired by Pinterest to paint my built-ins two-toned black and neutral. I chose Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and Benjamin Moore Silver Satin for my living room.
For Phase 2 of my living room makeover, I came up with a budget of $250. I like to put everything on paper and I am using my DIY Planner Printables to plan out the details.
But, before I ever start any DIY home project, I like to create a mood board to give me inspiration and to use as a visual guide as to how I want the outcome of the project to look.
My home was built in the 60’s which means there are a few rooms with paneled walls. To remove the “60’s” from my home, I used joint compound to fill in the grooves in the built-ins to create a flat surface.
When it came to the “look” I was going for with this makeover, I wanted a neutral look for the built-ins along with styling them with modern + vintage pieces.

On each of the shelves, I had a space I wanted to fill with artwork so I used thrifted artwork and frames that cost less than $15.
Phase 2 of my living room makeover cost me $280, which is $30 over budget, but I do have items left over that I will be able to use in future projects.
